Suspended Mayor of Guagua, Pampanga Calls for Calm and Unity

Suspended Mayor Dante Torres of Guagua, Pampanga had personally appealed on both supporters and his detractors in government to unite , and peacefully work for the common good of the people.

Mayor Dante Torres (suspended) is also a CPA by profession

 His administration has been laying down the necessary infrastructures and facilities to bolster the municipality’s quest for city-hood even before 2021. This also includes training government employees and ISO certification.

Citations from Government Institutions 

Guagua town got several awards and citations received last year : the Seal of Good Housekeeping given to local government units by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the title “Second Most Competitive Municipality” from the National Competitive Council (NCC), which annually evaluates the performance of LGUs in attracting capital , investors and pursuing infrastructure programs.

The local government has also been recognized by the Department of Health (DOH) for its aggressive health-oriented campaigns, distribution of free medicines to indigents, human vaccination, senior citizens projects and the eradication of rabies.

There are also plans to built a permanent building for the local college which is one of the basic requirements of CHED.

Case Filed

The case was under L-A-16-0136 which was approved last October 24, 2016 by Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales,Office of the Ombudsman in Manila has ordered a three-month suspension of Torres for grave misconduct and gross neglect of duty.

suspension was served by the Department of Interior and Local Government Regional Office last December 23, 2016.

The decision stated that Torres has been found administratively liable for simple misconduct, or violation of Article 171 (4) of Revised Penal Code, and was meted the medium penalty of suspension from office for a period of three months.

On February 1, 2016, Mr. Juan Pring ( a complainant ),  also from Guagua town filed before the Ombudsman a complaint for grave misconduct and gross neglect of duty after Torres allegedly signed a marriage certificate, which he did not officiate.

It had been over 5 months since he got the notice of suspension and some people resort to bad publicity, mud slinging, rumor mongering and negative trolling at different social media accounts like facebook and twitter.

Some of the below the belt accusations in social media platforms by his detractors and trolls are having over a dozen SUV vehicles and maintaining lavish lifestyle which he vehemently denied .
